Nõmme United form and stats

Nõmme United's travelling support has been rewarded for their time and money so far this season, having witnessed Nõmme United collect 22 points from their 11 away matches in the Esiliiga A. 7 victories and 1 draw have created these points (and only 3 defeats). Long winning streaks away are a rare occurrence in football, which only makes Nõmme United's record of five away victories in a row even more impressive. They last lost points away in the Flora II game.

The manager M. Klasen was unhappy after their last game, a Esiliiga A match played at their home ground. Nõmme suffered a 0-1 loss to Flora II (placed 4th).

Ahead of that match was the victory versus Tartu Welco at their stadium, the result 4-0.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Nõmme United manager M. Klasen as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Tallinna Kalev.

The prediction for this game is lots of goals as Nõmme alone have scored more than three on average in their league games away (37 from 11 played).
